Anyway, here are her questions and my answers:
What was the first record you ever bought?
There is no way that I'm going to admit to the first 45 that I bought, in my defence I was only 13 at the time and had led a very sheltered life up until then. But the first LP I remember buying was the 1979 That Summer compilation of fabulousness. I had to go for a hunt in the attic to find it, but that means that I'm going to share with you the entire list of songs, so I can wallow in nostalgia for a few minutes:
A1 –Ian Dury And The Blockheads, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll
A2 –Mink DeVille, Spanish Stroll
A3 –Elvis Costello, (I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea
A4 –Boomtown Rats, The She's So Modern
A5 –Zones, New Life
A6 –Only Ones, The Another Girl, Another Planet
A7 –Wreckless Eric, Whole Wide World
A8 –Patti Smith Group, Because The Night
B1 –Boomtown Rats, The Kicks
B2 –Ramones Rockaway Beach
B3 –Undertones, Teenage Kicks
B4 –Eddie And The Hot Rods, Do Anything You Wanna Do
B5 –Ian Dury And The Blockheads, What A Waste
B6 –Nick Lowe, I Love The Sound Of Breaking Glass
B7 –Elvis Costello, Watching The Detectives
B8 –Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Blank Generation
What is your favourite biscuit?
I don't really eat biscuits any more, but if I did, I would choose Scottish shortbread eaten in Scotland after a walk on the hills.
Who would you most like to go out on the lash with and why?
This one really stumped me. Excluding family, friends and bloggers, so no-one gets jealous, I finally picked a politician turned broadcaster who makes me laugh in the mornings, even though his politics are very different to mine. He also has a book out right now that apparently doesn't include any really shocking revelations. But I reckon if I got a few drinks into Ivan Yates, he'd be very entertaining, and he just might reveal a few political secrets...
Who is your blog crush?
Not being 100% sure what this means, I'm picking a blogger who inspires me with her tireless campaigning for those less fortunate. It could only be Michelle at Mummy from the Heart.
When are you happiest?
Easy. On the beach. Any beach will do. Preferably with my children.
What is your favourite word?
This nearly gave me sleepless nights. I'm a words person, and there are so many that I love, but have I been able to remember any of them since I saw this question? No, I haven't.
But here's a few anyway:
Do you have a secret talent?
Does wiggling my nose count? As a mature woman, it's not something I demonstrate very often any more.
What book would you recommend to me?
As a formerly rock n roll mum, it really should be a rock biography and I have read a few of them. And I'd like to read yours too one day. The one that sums up the rock and roll life for me - and it's a cracking good read - is Scar Tissue, by Anthony Kiedis.
Right, now I have to ask some questions and tag some bloggers. So here are my questions:
1. What's the first thing you do in the morning?
2. What's your favourite colour and why?
3. What did you wear to your first dance/disco/club night out?
4. If you would live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
5. If you had a million pounds/euros to spend on good causes, what would you do with it?
6. What's the proudest achievement in your life so far (excluding family)?
I'm hoping that the following bloggers will answer these questions:
